There’s been a few shake-ups in the schedule for the annual event on the Isle of Man for next year including more track time for solo competitors and a shift of the final qualifying session.

But there’s no replacement event for the TT Zero, electric bike race which has been dropped by Isle of Man race chiefs for two years whilst the future of the single-lap contest is reviewed. In recent years the amount of competitors taking part in the TT Zero race has dropped to single figures.

So here’s how the new-look Isle of Man TT races are lining up for 2020.
